Tip: Quick Cupcakes
To quickly frost cupcakes, place frosting in a bowl. The frosting should be a soft, spreadable consistency. If it is too stiff, add milk a teaspoon at a time until it reaches desired consistency. Dip top of cupcake into the frosting, twist slightly and lift up. – Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Tip: Semi-Homemade Frosting
Don’t have the time to make homemade frosting? Mix a can of store-bought frosting (any flavor) with an 8-ounce container of whipped topping. The result is so soft, creamy and easy to spread that everyone will think you made traditional cooked 7-minute frosting. – Sheila S., Eleanor, West Virginia
Tip: Tint It!
Tint white frosting with liquid, gel or paste food coloring. Liquid will give a pastel color; gel and paste give a deeper color. Add a little at a time, stir in and check the color. You can always add more, but it’s hard to lighten the color. The color generally darkens as the frosting dries. – Taste of Home Test Kitchen
